hi guys i have been given an assignment at uni to make a vice


i am fine with everything for the part building but when it comes to assembly im struggling,




this is a test screw i am using to try and learn from but i run into a problem:


at the moment the screw and threaded cylinder are mated by a screw mate and that seems ok, the thing is when i put a motor to the end of the screw it turns it but does not make it go up and down the cylinder like it should.


its probably a really easy thing that im missing but i cant work it out! no help on youtube either


any help to get my screw moving up and down would be much appreciated (i can upload more photos if needed)
